A general note on the calls:
- Potentially split into implementers and researchers calls. There are many who are doing research but not much implementation, and the opposite.
- Implementers calls’ time should be clearly split into discussions around MVP and Cash-families.
The feel of the plasma calls so far has been more of a “jam” where everybody is talking about what they looked at during these 2 weeks. I’d prefer that the path moving forward is much more structured and is either a progress update or a discussion on an ethresear.ch post - which was posted at least 2-days (arbitrary number) prior to the call, so that everybody can read it and digest it.
I also find it very important for an initial MVP vs Cash “debate”. Many people are working on MVP because it is convenient for arbitrary denomination payments and has been around longer, but many are also working on Cash(-flow) because they want light-clients and no mass-exits.
If somebody is presenting a proposal, or something they have implemented, they should include slides (shared in the video description). Ideally we should also do code reviews / audits. If we could get somebody to make a transcript, ETH-core-devs style that could also be a nice thing to have. I understand that it’s been a while and everyone has a lot of thoughts to talk about, but let’s try to prioritize towards matters that can be reused, rather than basically do free consulting for X company’s problems.
Let’s try to be as close as possible to the agenda and make each call have concrete outputs. I’m also a big fan of taking 1-2’ every time there’s a context change, to make sure everybody (non-attendees included) understood what was discussed.
